Pilgrim of the Week: Jerald Mutia, HR Manager

Pilgrim of the Week: Jerald Mutia, HR Manager

Happy Monday! Every week, we spotlight our Pilgrim team behind the scenes, and share their thoughts on upcoming projects and fun facts about what it’s like working at Pilgrim. From shows including Syfy’s “Ghost Hunters” to FS1’s “The Ultimate Fighter“, to our digital channel, 1620 Media, we wouldn’t be making your favorite tv shows without the best team working behind the scenes to make it happen. This week, we’re featuring Jerald Mutia, HR Manager, as the Pilgrim of the Week. Read what Jerald had to say about the coolest project he’s worked on and the best thing that’s happened to him this week:

What do you do at Pilgrim?

As the HR Manager, I administer the company benefit plans, onboard our new employees, and ensure that our employees are paid accurately. How can I help you?

What’s the coolest project you’ve worked on?

Pilgrim Pie Day! I’m part of the planning committee and this seems to be Pilgrim’s biggest event of the year. I’ve never been more excited for a company event in my entire career. Who doesn’t love games and food (especially pie)!

What’s the best thing that happened to you this week, either at work or outside of it?

My one-month-old daughter Luna smiled at me. It was because she had gas, but she smiled. She also let me sleep for 3 hours straight this week. Zzzzzz….

Fill in the blank: If you really knew me, you’d know..

…that underneath this robotic HR layer is a weird character. I also love fried potatoes, rice, beef, bacon, and 90s R&B music, including Mariah Carey #lambily

Who do you nominate for Pilgrim feature and why?

I nominate John Whitt from Accounting. He’s a nice, quiet guy and I want to hear what he has to say.
